West Ham’s busy summer window shows no signs of stopping, with Manuel Pellegrini aiming to complete three deals this week.
The Times states the Hammers are on the verge of signing Jack Wilshere on a free transfer from London rivals Arsenal, while they are also looking to complete deals for Andriy Yarmolenko and Fabian Balbuena.
28-year-old Yarmolenko was only signed by Borussia Dortmund last summer but has struggled to establish himself at the Bundesliga outfit and the two clubs are said to have agreed a fee of £17.5m for the Ukraine international.
Meanwhile, Balbuena is set to arrive from Brazilian side Corinthians and will become the Hammers’ fourth defensive signing of the summer – following the captures of Ryan Fredericks, Issa Diop and goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski.
The South American side have already confirmed the sale of the 23-year-old Paraguay centre-back, who has made 136 appearances during his three seasons with the club – scoring 11 goals.
